Low Cost, High Business Benefit


Gartner Report

Data discovery leaders have the lowest three-year BIPOC per user, largely driven by a reduced need for IT FTEs and external implementation services.

Inside the report Gartner states:

  • Buying low license cost platforms does not always translate into low business intelligence platform ownership cost (BIPOC) over time, or into higher business benefits.

Gartner also recommends:

  • Balance any cost consideration with functional requirements, expected adoption and potential business benefits when evaluating vendors.
  • Manage the cost of incremental pricing as deployment sizes grow and manage maintenance increases over time, rather than focus solely on initial price negotiations.
  • Consider cloud BI as an option to reduce infrastructure costs and to take advantage of product innovations without the need to upgrade existing infrastructure.
  • Include switching costs as part of your evaluation if you are considering moving from a high priced vendor to one with lower overall costs.
